Great place to work, not just another Silicon Valley software company; they make products useful to the world.

I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I speak from my experience on my team in the engineering department at San Francisco for multiple years, but:
- competent coworkers, professional environment without being too "corporate sterile"
- release schedules are dictated by reality, not wishful thinking
- very flexible, I haven't had problems with working from home or scheduling vacations
- people are open to listening to new ideas
- it's rare that I have to work more than 40 or so hours a week
- company events and nicely stocked break rooms show me that they aren't just doing the minimum to check off boxes of "expected software company perks"
- I feel secure about my position; when I started I thought I'd just work here for a few years and then move on, but now (barring any major life changes) I see myself sticking around here.

Cons

Having to commute to the Sunnyvale office can be a nuisance, but I'm only expected to do it a couple times a month.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it up.
